    I am excited to join the staff of Vista del Lago!  I will be teaching chemistry and biology.  This is my fifth year teaching high school age students.  I have also taught 4-8th graders at a Montessori school, and in my past career I was a molecular virologist researching HIV and HTLV (human T-cell leukemia virus).  I have lived in the Lincoln area for 20+ years, but I grew up in Pennsylvania and Illinois.  I earned my Biology degree from the University of Illinois (Go Illini!).  My husband and four children and I live on a hobby farm with sheep and geese and chickens, and many dogs/cats/guinea pigs/rats/hamsters.

    Donations Much Appreciated: 

    If you would like to donate to the science classroom, we use LOTS and LOTS of whiteboard markers to practice our newly learned skills.

     

    Facial Tissues are also much appreciated to keep the drippy noses and sniffles contained.

     

  • Students should check the student calendar posted to Google Classroom daily to find links to resources used in class, homework assignments, upcoming important dates, and instructions for completing work when absent.  It is important that absent students check the calendar and complete missing work before returning to school if at all possible in order to not fall behind on work and content understanding.
